Dry matter accumulation and post-silking N economy of 'stay-green' maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids
(Elsevier on behalf of the European Society for Agronomy, 2013-11)
The decline in dry matter accumulation in maize (Zea mays L.) during kernel filling, as N is remobilised, has elicited interest in the evaluation of traits to sustain leaf dry matter during this period. This study at ...
Elucidating the physiological mechanism of 'stay green' in maize hybrids - crop growth processes and nitrogen economy
(Lincoln University, 2011)
The study reported in this thesis was established during 2008/09 and 2009/10 at Lincoln University, New Zealand, to investigate the physiological mechanisms of the 'stay-green' trait in maize hybrids. In 2008/09, the ...
